St Paddy's Ruffian

ok, you guys have probably seen the Ruffian mani done on so many other blogs
yeah yeah... I know.
I'm always late to the party...

anyway, over in Singapore, we don't really celebrate St Patrick's Day
but heh... I'll take any excuse to do a green mani =P

Polishes used are:

Essence #18 Check Me Out

and Essence #53 All Access

and here's my version of the the ruffian:

Natural daylight.

Indoors, natural daylight.

Indoors, natural daylight with camera flash.

And for those of you who weren't really confident of doing this freehand:
*somehow, I could freehand a french tip but not it's reverse!*

I used a nail art brush,

and did a rough outline of the smile line before painting the second colour.

(I apologise for the quality of these last 2 photos. I had the curtains drawn but didn't realise that)

contests and such said...

This is awesome! Thanks for the tip, too! I did a ruffian for STP and it did NOT turn out as good as yours.
